The Baton Rouge office is an evolution of a geotechnical and geoenvironmental practice started more than 25 years ago. In 1985, Victor Donald, P.E., joined Ware Lind Engineers to start its first branch office. Ware Lind was a geotechnical engineering firm established in 1961 in Jackson, Miss. Taking a 12-month lease in a 1,500 square foot office warehouse, the office grew to more than 30 staff within five years. In the early 90s the firm became Aquaterra Engineering, Inc., as a result of an acquisition by a Fortune 500 company. From the time of this acquisition until 2000, the firm performed predominantly environmental projects. In 2001, the geotechnical side of the practice was reactivated, and it began to thrive, becoming a well established geotechnical consultant in Baton Rouge. In 2009, with the merger of Aquaterra into Terracon, the Baton Rouge office enhanced its stature as the premier geotechnical, CMET, and environmental consultant in Baton Rouge.
